parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> we know what this president believes. but governor romney -- >> with these guys, it all depends on who you're talking to, where you are, what time of day it is, what state you're in, what the polls say. how the weather is. it
everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big time, that they were having greater and greater danger and they sent that to the state department. obviously, nothing happened there. we now have the information that the counter-terrorism security group -- that's a group that is supposed to convene when there is an act of terror to coordinate the efforts of all the different agencies of government. you know that they were never convened? they were never convened in this act of terror that took the lives of four brave americans. so, it's getting out there, greta. it's angering our veterans and it's angering our active duty people. i think it can have an impact because we have still got 5 more days. this is a classic scandal where almost every day or ever
to nbc's first read, romney was in florida yesterday and virginia today. he'll also hit wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, and colorado before the election. the president, this is an interesting map for him, he will be in wisconsin, where he is right now, with nevada, colorado, ohio, iowa, virginia, and florida. of course, they're sending their number one surrogates, the vp nominee, out where they're not going. is this the map, centered in ohio, virginia, and florida, is it still where the action is? >> it is for governor romney for sure. it's always been the case that governor romney needs to win florida, needs to win virginia, and pretty much needs to win ohio. even then he still needs to pick up another state somewhere along the way. you can see in his map that he's spending months of his time in florida, virginia, and ohio and a little bit of time in one of those other states that he thinks he might be able to get a pickup, whether that's wisconsin, whether that's colorado. those are the states he thinks he has the best chance. he's not spending time in iowa. he'll spend two different

, colorado, florida. pennsylvania's not gone for a republican for president since reagan and bush and when bush sr. carried pennsylvania, he also carried california and illinois and new jersey, places where they would hunt romney down with dogs. this is not like the map he needs if he wants to win pennsylvania. i don't really wish him well, i don't wish him any ill. but he's wasting money. >> what's the strategy, john avlon? you're in ohio tonight. is the push in pa a a sign of weakness in ohio? john king's talking about he feels it's neck and neck, different than he felt in the last election, but do you think that? >> president obama has had a small but steady lead in ohio. we think the romney campaign is looking at a saturation point. there's not much more than you can do except get out the vote. with money, the with the candidate's time more importantly, i think speaks to change the strategy because the current strategy isn't working. they're looking for alternate paths to 270. states where it looked like romney was pulling ahead in. florida, virginia, colorado. the fact the romney camp
, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio, and one small state in this case new hampshire. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti
that's why people are standing in long lines in florida. that's why you need to get online early or if you're in a voting state that does not have early voting, be online tuesday rain or shine. he's right. he's more than just about you and i. it's about all of us. and those behind us. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> how close? let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. president obama has got a spring in his step this friday before the election propelled by a good week on the job and 171,000 new jobs in this morning's report. he's out there in ohio fighting the good fight. i only make predictions when people make me make them, but the trajectory, the momentum, now seems pro-obama. pennsylvania will hold, ohio looks good but close, and all the battlegrounds look winnable for the president. the huge question is turnout, that and rational self-interest. the young who believe in science, women who believe in protecting their rights, latinos who can see a brighter future with a supportiv

. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and -- you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting ought the attention but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read the new york post because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the vict victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for bara
him florida and north carolina, two states where he's doing well. we'll also give him virginia, with its 13 electoral votes. we're starting here with a map of other states that he would definitely get. now you've got him at 266. now he can take any one of those remaining five battleground states to win, even four electoral votes from new hampshire. that shows you why ohio is such a big deal. if we take ohio back off the map that takes him down to 252. >> of those that you just showed putting him at 266, how many of those states is he leading in? >> well, this is -- if you really want to start in his strongest positions are really in north carolina and virginia. excuse me, north carolina and florida. that only gets him to 235 if you add in the states he's already got. so that's really where he's doing the best right now. that's why his path to 270 is so tough. >> and the path for the president? >> well, the path for the president is better. you could even see a situation with the president where if he lost virginia, let's give virginia, ohio and florida to romney. then if the pr
. and then this year the republican convention in tampa, florida, had to be delayed for a day due to another hurricane, hurricane isaac. the biggest true october surprise we have ever had where it wasn't just affecting a convention or something else in the campaign but it was right before the election, the biggest true october surprise we ever had was that one in 1956. the only other arguably really big one besides 1956 what was happened in 2004. that year it was not a hurricane. it was not a war abroad. it wasn't a natural disaster of any kind. it wasn't something one of our allies did. that year it was bin laden. >> tonight osama bin laden has a message for america four days before this country votes. >> reporter: it's the first new video from osama bin laden, himself, in more three years. an extraordinary statement addressed to an american audience with direct references to the two presidential candidates. he says, quote, your security is not in the hands of kerry or bush or al qaeda, it's in your hands. the big question tonight, why release a tape apparently timed to come out on the eve of the u.s
this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are amera's men. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving president obama a path to victy, nnng nevada a ohio, to get to 277 electoral votes. for mitt romney the path could also lead through ohio, and blanketing the south, to get to 281 in a different scenario. and there are also several potentials for a tie. this one shows the president losing nevada but winning ohio, to get to 269 for both candidates. and late today, the "newshour" got word that romney will make a last-minute sto
, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin. eight of nine surveys are the past week and a crucial ohio give obama a narrow edge. and we will be focusing on a violator in today's "washington journal." and our swing state series. we want to hear from voters and not-swing states. we want to hear how the election is playing out how you are. and this from the baltimore sun, charging more the candidates will go in the next couple days. ting where the candidates will go in the next couple days. again, the candidates focusing all of their attention in the days leading up to election day on as swing states. we will go to david and the kentucky on the democratic line. tell us a little bit about how the campaign is playing out in the kentucky, one of the non- swing states. caller: it is mostly just romney signs of here, not many obama signs. i think you will landslide ky. the polls s
president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> larry, so on your map, you have florida as leaning republican, but the in your blog, you point out that romney will be stumping there in the last four days. is that evidence that the romney campaign doesn't feel that it's in the bag for them and that there could be movement there for the president? >> it's not in the bag, that's for sure. the reason we have it in the republican camp is because it leans slightly republican. one of the reporters down there, adam smith of the tampa bay times says romney probably has a lead in that corridor that often determines florida elections. but at the same time, he says the obama camp has been doing an extraordinary job in mining the maximum out of the heavily democratic south florida area. that could even it out. the reason romney is there is because his lead is very tenuous. i think he does have a lead. but we're talking about a point. we're not talking about three or four points. so that's why you have to keep the pressure up. that's why he's in florida. that's why he's in virginia. frankly, it'
of the country is quiet. there will be some snow in the upper midwest. we'll keep an eye on florida, the swing state and there is going to be some shower and thunderstorm activity there as one little piece of energy not necessarily our nor'easter starts to round the coast. listen, around here, i think it will be on the chilly side. that rain should stay out of our area. maybe some showers and into georgia. thunder for the florida area and keeping an eye on what might be a nor'easter on wednesday. concerned for this in new england, new york, new jersey. one scenario takes it out to sea and another has it coming up the coast. not is like -- not like sandy. they don't need anything additional on what has happened there. the polls open locally on tuesday and we're expecting to have mostly sun around with the temperature in the low 50s, brian. >> in an interview with shepherd smith, when we return. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our h
. obama's going to visit colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and florida. and an almost identical tour for romney excepts he swaps florida in favor of, get this, pennsylvania. very interesting. now you're going to be looking, there it is, live pictures of westchester, ohio, where a mitt romney rally is under way. tens of thousands there, and lines to come into the rally stretch out for six blocks. this is interesting. does team romney see an opening there? let's talk here now is democratic strategist robert shrum, columnist for "the daily beast" and ed rogers, republican strategist and former bush 41 deputy assistant. gentlemen, welcome back. >> good to be here. >> i want to begin with this thought. not the jobs thing. the jobs thing is too inconclusive. what is so interesting is the aftermath, the immediate aftermath of the hurricane has turned out to be far worse, difficult. people die. gasoline lines. 1970 style stuff. somebody has to bear the blame for that even though it may be unfair. people are in an ugly mood about the aftermath of this storm, bob

the unemployment rates, nevada, 11.8%. colorado still 8%. wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, florida, iowa. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tues
